Saboteurs Damage Monument to Internees Under Construction Near Famagusta, Cyprus

Saboteurs have damaged a monument near Famagusta, Cyprus, commemorating the Jews interned in British camps after their attempts to break the British blockade of Palestine during the post-World War II mandate days, it was reported here. The monument is near the site of several large camps. The official ground breaking ceremony was held last week with hundreds of the camps’ former internees attending. Local police were investigating. During the ceremony, Arab demonstrators were dispersed by police.
